farmer's market

Here's where you get the freshest food available. Even better, you get the satisfaction of knowing the farmer who grows your favorite vegetables, or who takes care of the chickens that supply your fresh eggs. Here's where you go, and when. Note: not all farmers grow organically, so be sure to look for banners and signs saying that they are organic growers.
